What Makes It Great

I recently purchased this king size bed in the slate grey option, I had to wait a long time for delivery but it was totally worth the wait! Dreams came and delivered the bed on a Saturday, the delivery men were so helpful and respectful of my home. They contacted me the night before to tell me my two hour time slot and even called me in the morning to re-confirm. Once we unboxed the bed it took us around an hour to assemble, it is definitely a two man job as the head board is heavy!! It really does have the 'wow' factor, beautiful quality and we are getting so many compliments on the head board. Totally worth the money, buy, buy, buy if you haven't already!!

Questions and Answers

Hi I have a relyon foam king size mattress measuring approx- 5 ft width by 78 inches length and depth is 10 inches will this mattress fit this bed and we can use ottoman lift perfectly?

Answer: Hi , If you buy the king size then yes. Thank you.

what is the maximum mattress weight the superking can lift? There must be a limit to what the pistons are capable of.

Answer: Hi , We do not have set weight limits. Bed frames are tested to 18 stone, however this doesn't mean it can only hold 18 stone across the whole surface area. 18 stone is tested on specific areas of the frame, meaning a weight higher than this would be fine as the weight would be distributed across the whole frame over just one specific area. Our only frames that would be limited at 18 stone are our range of adjustable beds. This ottoman should be fine with any mattress weight. Thank you.

On the deacon it states the height of headboard, but what additional width would you need to have?

Does this ottoman base have an enclosed bottom? meaning the compartment has a floor, raising your stored items off the ground? If so, what is the depth of this compartment?

Answer: The Deacon bed frame has solid base panels as the floor of the ottoman and therefore the items you store here will be raised off of the floor. The depth of the storage area is 28cm. Kind Regards, Dreams

Does the grey version of this ottoman bed come with feet? In the photo it seems to have little square wooden feet but the beige version seems to sit directly on the floor? Are they different styles, or is one photo showing the bed incorrectly?

Are the 'feet' made from solid wood?

Answer: The feet on this frame are made from solid pine. Kind Regards, Dreams

What size bed frame would fit a mattress that is 6ft7in length and 5ft6in width? Thanks

Answer: The most suitable bed frame size would be a super king which would accommodate a super king mattress measuring 6'0 x 6'8 - however this would be slightly bigger than your mattress so there could be some gaps on the sleeping area. A king bed frame accommodates a mattress measuring 5'0 x 6'8 and hence would not be big enough for your mattress. Kind Regards, Dreams

Is the grey fabric option the same grey as the Ellis bedstead?

Answer: Hi, Apologies for the confusion, the grey fabric colour on the Deacon is the same as the Knox, not the Ellis.

Can you please tell me what size pieces the bed comes in as I have a wind on the stairs which makes it difficult to get large items upstairs. The assembly instructions link doesn't work on your website

Answer: The Deacon Ottoman will be delivered in 3 boxes, the size of these will depend on the size of the bed that is ordered. Double - Box 1: 165cm (H) x 138cm (L) x 26cm (W). Box 2: 198cm (H) x 38cm (L) x 16cm (W). Box 3: 194cm (H) x 72cm (L) x 15cm (W). King - Box 1: 180cm (H) x 138cm (L) x 26cm (W). Box 2: 208cm (H) x 38cm (L) x 16cm (W).

Gorgeous bed

I’d been looking at this bed for a long time before I eventually bought it in the sale last week. It looks absolutely stunning and the ottoman base is perfect for storage. Nothing else on the market compares to this as far as style and value for money are concerned. Things I love: Style, colour, ottoman storage, price Things that could be improved: Fabric on headboard appears a little crinkled (or am I just fussy?!) The ottoman function is heavy to lift up initially and push down at the end (not suitable for people with little strength or bad backs!) Overall though I’m absolutely delighted with the bed itself and service received from dreams

Amazing Bed

Bought this bed just over 2 week ago and can honestly say it is amazing. Read loads of reviews that it squeaked after use and it doesn't in the slightest. I very nearly didn't purchase this product due to the reviews but I'm so glad I didn't let the reviews away my decision. It not only comfortable but very stylish and very complimentary in the bedroom. The headboard is a feature in itself and easily gives the wow factor.

Not suitable as a super king bed

I received this bed yesterday and am shocked at the poor quality. It simply has 6 foot wooden slats that aren't supported in the middle, except for one leg on a single slat, meaning the bed sags in the middle. I am upgrading to the sprung slats but do not think this will help that much as even they only have one leg support in the middle. I really regret buying this bed and wish I had purchased a divan and headboard

Not the grey I was expecting

Bought this bed in store and didn’t have a sample of the grey colour but was told it would be the same as the sana which my daughter has. The colour was nothing like my daughters bed. It is more of a blue/green(teal) colour. Contacted customer services and they couldn’t of been more apologetic organised to have bed picked up and a full refund. Quality of bed is 5 stars just not grey!

Great bed but disappointed it’s started squeaking.

Bought this bed about a month ago and I could not fault it at the beginning. However, the last few days the bed has starting squeaking and crunching whenever you move. Very irritating considering it’s brand new. Rather disappointed we have spent £600 on a bed for it to deteriorate after a month. Other than that, beautiful looking bed, to bad it’s not practical.

Squeaky and creaky

This is a beautiful bed it must be said however I am teminfef every time I sit or get into it that it is loud squeaky and creaky. I am 9.2 stone so I don't think this is down to weight. I've put up with it for months now fed up had this bed for 8 months and feel as though it won't last as long as id hop3d for the price. Disappointed


Bought this bed approximately 2 months ago & recently the bed has started squeaking due to bolts that have rounded off from the slats - Homeserve been out to take a look, nothing they can do as they dont stock these bolts so referred back to Dreams - Not a happy customer & would not recommend this bed frame to any friends or family!

Amazing value

I bought this bed a month ago and I'm so pleased with it. Originally we bought a super king but it wouldn't fit, Dreams were great and took it away, returning with a king size which fits perfectly. Be warned the head board is very large, so it's a great feature but also worth bearing in mind when choosing what size you want.

Fantastic bed

I have had my lovely bed for nearly three weeks. Beautiful bed looks stunning in my bedroom. We have the Emma mattress which has completed our bed. The colour is just a right shade of beige which would work with any decor. So glad we bought especially since we bought it the Christmas sales!

Looks great!

Bought this before Christmas and arrived all ok and on time, delivery guys were nice. Looks lovely, the only thing is lifting the ottoman is quite heavy! So maybe not so great for an elderly person. Otherwise it is a lovely bed and would recommend. (Just wish I waited for the sales!)

Beautiful bed

More than happy with the upholstered deacon. I have have none of the mentioned issues with the slates that others have highlighted. Colour is more cream/grey especially in certain lights. Very pleased with my purchase.

Tidy little bed

Replacement bed same size as the old one but more compact. Saved space and really happy with it. Delivery guys were also great delivered to our bedroom and they picked up the old bed with minimal fuss.

Great solid headboard

Very easy to assemble if you can follow instructions. However my own mattress which I had from my previous 4”6 bed frame didn’t quite fit, it’s too big and is slightly hanging at the foot end.

Looks a lot lighter online

Gorgeous bed, very easy to build! Ordered in store, got it in the grey colour however it’s a lot darker than it looks online, plus the photos online show the bed has feet however it doesn’t?

Looks fab!

Brought this around a month ago and was a great purchase. Very sturdy and solid, no issues with assembly. Looks really elegant in our room and the headboard is a great statement piece.

Perfect purchase

I have had my new bed now for 3 weeks and it is perfect. From entering the store to delivery I can honestly say there is no room for improvement. A big thank you to Dreams

Love it!

Originally picked another bed which couldn’t be delivered for a few months so decided to go for this bed and we are SO glad we did. Cannot fault it at all!

Good for the Money

This bed looks great and is comfortable with a good mattress. Mine is 6 months old and has an 8 year old use it as a trampoline and so far no creaking.

So comfy looks fab too!

I bought this a few weeks ago and it looks so lovely in my bedroom. It’s grand headboard makes the room look really plush I highly recommend this
